" poll, asked who can handle the economy better, obama leads romney 6 points in ohio and five in florida. with five weeks left, months, years of campaigning already past us, isn't he in danger of losing the rationale for his campaign, that he is the better steward of the economy? >> you know, in these kinds of races people really focus near the end. and that is happening now. the president is trying to distort our record and our pro-growth tax reform cuts taxes 20% and higher take-home pay for middle class and pro-growth economic policies, that creates about 7 million jobs. so, the final analysis, people will realize, all the president is offering is more of the same with another round of stimulus and higher tax rates on job creators. we are offering very specific reforms, how do you save and shrink the medicare and social security and prevent the debt crisis and grow jobs, how do you have an interview policy that unleashes american internally and has energy independence? >> chris: here's my question, though, the fact the message has not gotten through as effectively as it could, so far,
on the verge of recession. contrary to media reports, governor romney's campaign is not dead. a rasmussen poll gives him an edge among voters who will definitely vote and see his tracking poll of likely voters first on this program minutes from now. no letup in tax the rich mania. the u.n. takes aim at the richer people in america and europeans riot again to make them pay for, well, for everything. and then there is this, the european beat americans at golf again. but cheer up, "varney & company" is about to begin. >> good morning, "varney & company," today is monday october the 1st. wednesday is the first presidential debate and the obama campaign spent the weekend trying to low up media expectations that the president's already won. most mainstream polls do indeed have president obama in the lead, but according to rasmussen, governor romney has an edge among certain voters. 43% of likely voters say they are certain they will vote for mitt romney. 42% say they'll vote for the president. that's a very slight edge, but 15% of voters say they are uncommitted, with a number that large, the debat
mitt romney is leading in all the polls and it's a liberal conspiracy to suppress the republican -- boy, that's something. could it be they just don't accept the legs ma si of a democrat in the white house. that's my theory. they don't think democrats belong in the white house. they'd given the congress awou for 100 years if they could have the white house. this is "hardball," the place for politics. gave it greater horsepower and best in class 38 mpg highway... advanced headlights... and zero gravity seats? yeah, that would be cool. ♪ introducing the completely reimagined nissan altima. it's our most innovative altima ever. nissan. innovation that excites. ♪ nissan. innovation that excites. i'm bara ck o bama and i approven. innovation that excites. romney: "it's time to stand up to the cheaters" vo: tough on china? not mitt romney. when a flood of chinese tires threatened a thousand american jobs... it was president obama who stood up to china and protected american workers. mitt romney attacked obama's decision... said standing up to china was "bad for the nation and our workers.
, have more to lose than mitt romney? i mean, obviously the polls show that he's ahead. >> i think we're so focused on comparing it to each other. i think we need to be focused on is what kind of performance does each man need to have? i do think that the fact that -- remember, president obama was not good at debates during the last cycle. he got better throughout the course of the debates. so did mitt romney. seeing what performances are like, i think the stakes are very high for both men. that's not his problem. his problem is that he is able to have one good day, not two good days. he needs to have a solid wednesday and be solid thursday, friday. otherwise it looks like another fluke. you prepared for one performance but your campaign is in disarray. you don't have answers to questions. you can't give details to policies. but you're making big promises. that's not going to work for governor romney. even if he has a good performance. i think with president obama, the challenge for him to, again, short answers kwb to the point. stay personable as we've seen him on the campaign trail.
